Phillips Murrah Presents: Paying It Forward

Amplifying the message of one non-profit each month for a year

[Paying It Forward] In Dec. 2020, Phillips Murrah partnered with Oklahoma NPR radio station KGOU to sponsor broadcast announcements each month that shine a light on a selected non-profit organization. Our aim is to amplify each beneficiary organizations’ needs and goals, and to help increase awareness, drive volunteer quality and quantity, assist in fundraising support, and improve capacity to deliver service to the community.

Our beneficiary in June is Arts Council Oklahoma City, proudly exposing our community to the full spectrum of art in its many forms. By focusing on teaching, learning, and appreciating the arts, their events and programs help the residents to create, experience, and enjoy art.  #PIFOKC

Phillips Murrah helps bring NPR’s StoryCorps to OKC

In February of 2018, Phillips Murrah partnered with local NPR radio station, KOSU, to bring the nationally renowned StoryCorps MobileBooth to Oklahoma City.

Through StoryCorps, Oklahomans were able to record their meaningful, intimate personal stories in the MobileBooth, an Airstream trailer containing their travelling recording studio. From February 8 to March 9, 2018, as part of a cross-country tour, the famed MobileBooth was parked at Pop-Up Park at NW 10th St. and N. Hudson Ave.

From KOSU’s website:

In StoryCorps’ MobileBooth, two people are able to record a meaningful conversation with one another about who they are, what they’ve learned in life, and how they want to be remembered. A trained StoryCorps facilitator guides them through the interview process. At the end of each 40-minute recording session, participants receive a complimentary CD copy of their interview. With participant permission, a second copy is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress for future generations to hear.

Phillips Murrah is proud to partner with KOSU to help facilitate our community’s ability to tell their stories.
